It’s a very strange world we live in where a small-government libertarian jerkwad like me finds himself agreeing with most points made by Ralph Nader, who is as socialist as they come.
I don’t agree with all of his points, but certainly with more than two-thirds of them. Here are his stances in the video with my opinions by each.
1. Raise the minimum wage – No. Way too many unintended consequences when you do this (increased prices, increased unemployment, less business growth, etc). Wage and price controls are never a good idea outside of something like wartime. Plus the stats say the vast majority of people making minimum wage are teenagers or close to it.
